LENS:Italian videoart observation point on VisualcontainerTV

LENS: Italian videoart observation point
A special selection from VISUALCONTAINER Italian Videoart Distributor
5 April - 2 May 2011
Only on VisualContainerTV
Curatorial statement:
We’re assisting with ever-growing doubts to the dramatic social and
geographical events that are currently taking place in the European
Union members, as having understood that what happens in any part of the
Global Village will eventually affect all the others.
Also the world of contemporary art is being pushed by the urgencies of an  ever-growing mixing up of several technologies and media languages,  which overlap and join with the network of our daily life as ordinary people.
And so, within such a confusion and restirring puzzle where
ecological pressures melt with identity and global life urgencies that
absolutely need responding, Italian videoart can become an effective
observation point over what’s topical with both Italy and the wider
image of Europe and beyond.
As multi-faceted as the social-cultural
kaleidoscope of our contemporary age, the videos on show, listing among
the latest additions to VisualContainer’s archive, become a magnifying
lens of what’s happening around us: sometimes by creatively magnifiying
small and ordinary pieces of daily life, other times by introducing us
to more complex art visions which are full of lyrism, the authors are
here travelling from the microcosme of our inner and proximal space to
the greater stage of the society we’re developing with other inhabitans, in and out the national borders, in the present time and already out in the near future.
